Program Grant MakingErie Arts & Culture distributes more than $300,000 in grants to individual artists and nonprofit organizations located throughout northwestern Pennsylvania each year. These grants take the form of Erie Arts & Culture Grants, which are made possible through the Erie Arts Endowment and the annual United Arts Fund, as well as grants from a state program known as the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA).

Eligibility and application requirements vary from program to program, and we encourage you to learn more about these funding opportunities by reviewing program guidelines, attending the free information sessions offered throughout the year, or contacting our program staff.
